There is so much I can say about this venue, and how amazing Julie & Brian were throughout our whole wedding process. First of all, Julie & Brian are amazing people who are so warm and lovely, they made us feel so at home in their inn. The Inn itself is absolutely beautiful, every room is special in its own unique way, and the barn is a great space that makes the perfect spot for a party. The inn grounds are gorgeous, the lake is so much fun to hang out on, and the trails on the property were perfect for morning walks with our dog Baxter. We rented out the Inn for the weekend so our whole family could stay with us, and it ended up being one of the best decisions we made for the weekend. From the time everybody checked in to the inn, to the rehearsal dinner, to the wedding, every single detail was taken care of. Julie, Brian, and the wedding coordinator Cassie were amazing on my wedding day, and there was not a single thing out of place. My husband and I LOVED our wedding at the Bear Mountain Inn, and we would 1000% recommend this venue to anybody and everybody who is planning a wedding in Maine.Sent on 10/12/2018

A picturesque wedding venue!
Where do I even begin with how AMAZING this venue was! We loved how personal and special we were made to feel from the first viewing right through to the follow up after our wedding. The owners, Brian and Julie are some of the nicest and most genuine people you will ever meet and really take the time to get to know you, not only you as the bride and groom but all of your guests who are staying the weekend with you. Cassie, the wedding coordinator, was awesome to work with! She is thorough, prompt with responses to questions and extremely organized, she was never more then a quick email away. All 3 of them were nothing but extremely helpful during our wedding weekend, especially the day of, they are right there with anything you need.Sent on 09/15/2019
The property itself, GORGEOUS! The Inn is completely renovated and let me tell you they did not miss a detail, its modern but still has that cozy feel you want at a bed and breakfast. My husband and I stayed 5 nights with our Golden Retriever and all 3 of us felt completely comfortable and at home, we actually we all very sad the day we had to leave! And if you are looking for an authentic rustic barn this is the place for you. The two chandeliers in the barn are just gorgeous, it is something you just have to see in person. The patio where we had our ceremony overlooking the lake was just absolutely breathtaking! We have received so many compliments from our guests on this venue!
My husband really wanted our reception in an authentic old barn and we both have a love for mountains, water and nature, and this venue had it all! And the fact that they only do ONE wedding a weekend was such a big deal to us!
Our guests got to stau with us and enjoyed everything this property had to offer for 3 amazing nights and all of them are still raving about the breakfast buffet each morning!
I could just go on and on about this property and venue but I will end with it is 100% worth it to check them out, I guarantee you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back many times to come as Inn guests!

The Best Choice You'll Ever Make!
If you're looking for a rustic barn wedding venue (with a beautiful water view!), where you can spend your entire wedding weekend surrounded by those you love most, than look no further than the Bear Mountain Inn. We cannot say enough positive things in this posting to convey our appreciation for all that Julie and Brian (the owners) and Cassie (their Wedding Coordinator) did to make our wedding weekend simply perfect. Their thoughtfulness, responsiveness and attention to detail helped us to enjoy our wedding planning process from start to finish. The best part about working with Julie, Brian and Cassie is that they make every single planning moment fun and memorable. They make you feel like your wedding is the only wedding they are working on and while you are there for your wedding weekend they make you feel like the Bear Mountain Inn is your home away from home. It was clear that all of our guests felt like our wedding was an experience, not just an event.Sent on 09/16/2019
Looking back on our wedding, it's clear that what made it special was the people we chose to involve. All three of them are truly the kindest, most hard-working people we've ever met. They have poured their hearts and souls into the Inn and you can really feel that during your time there. We can't wait to visit every year for our anniversary!
